Mapei Ultraflex 2 or 3 or something different? Bathroom Installation


Hello,


Should I use Ultraflex 2 or 3 in a shower application for ceramic tile?

How about for the walls in the bathroom and flooring? Ultraflex 2 or something else? like: Kerabond/Keralastic System

Should I use Ultraflex 3 for the joint fillinings?

Mapei's site is a little confusing and doesn't give specifics.

Thank you in advance.

I do a lot of tile, and I stick with an old favorite. Custom thinset with acrylic admix has always worked best for me. I've used Kerabond severl times because it was specified in the architectural construction orders. But, that's because some architect read up on it and was impressed by it's write up promotional. If you use an admix instead of water when mixing the thinset, it adds bonding strength like glue, and helps waterproof it as well with great resistence to staining/bleaching, effervescing, and cracking.
